The New York Marriott Marquis
W. 46th Street & Broadway
On January 22, more than 400 members of Food Bank’s network of emergency food programs braved the snow and cold to attend NYC’s Conference on Hunger and Poverty at the New York Marriott Marquis for a day of learning and networking. The main message of the day was the need for anti-hunger agencies to focus on reducing the huge meal gap facing New York City in the wake of increased need and reduced federal assistance. Even with the robust support of nonprofits across the city, New Yorkers are missing more than 100 million meals each year.
